Returning after more than a month’s work related absence, Reeshard & Lee-Roy  resumed business within the DJ booth at the Purple Bat Lounge last Saturday evening. Those who can recall the night in question — but who speaks to those people? — say it was like the pair had never left. Certainly all the ingredients of a successful night on the town were present and accounted for: A human and his faithful feckless pit bull spinning nearly three dozen tunes at lease-breaking volume; a double-feature of Russ Meyer nudie-cuties screening at the Madison; and, of course, Uncle Morty’s former ice cream truck making its requisite mid-show appearance. Of course, onto each parade some rain must fall. It was with no little sorrow that the respective departures from this mortal coil of both Andre Williams (long-standing patron saint of NCIP) and defining iconoclast Scott Walker were duly commemorated during the broadcast. But even those memento mori enhanced a couple of entertaining hours wasted in downtown Detroit. Hear for yourself by clicking a few pixels to the south of these words…

In the run-up to next week’s first of two Luxuria Music Pledge Drive shows, DJ’s Reeshard & Lee-Roy put on a collective brave face and did their level best to convince anyone within earshot that the world was not ending. Or, more to the point, if the world was in fact about to pop its clogs, no one within the Purple Bat Lounge cared very much about said event. Over three dozen storming tunes were heard in the course of this Saturday evening and a very, very psychedelic twin-bill featured at the Madison Theater. With the appropriate gesture that is his signature, Uncle Morty brought a canister of LSD-25 to the DJ booth. Lee-Roy recognized a thread of conceptual continuity materializing and, in response, fashioned an empathogen-friendly final set. You might ask: What could that have sounded like? You could learn the answer to your own question simply by clicking immediately below…it’s just that easy.

Wait…what happened? When? Last Saturday night? Well…we remember getting in that fly Electra Two-And-A-Quarter and driving down Brush Street to the Purple Bat Lounge…oh yeah, then Lee-Roy, ever the charm school drop-out, hollered at bartender LaWanda to whip up one of her signature Lee-Roy cocktails…the tunes began to play…LOUDLY…then Uncle Morty’s truck pulled up — he missed the lawn jockey, I remember that much — and the rest, frankly, is a bit of a blur. You’ll just have to examine the official record — just a few pixels south of where you’re reading…yeah, it’s the thing with the big <PLAY> arrow — and make up your own mind…it must have been fun…well, you’ll find out soon enough…

Last Saturday’s episode began on time…but only just, in no small part owing to DJ Reeshard’s ability to track down co-host Lee-Roy, the latter missing in action immediately prior to airtime. Specifics of the sordid incident are revealed in this week’s audio bonus, available to stream or download immediately below Ep. 184. With order — or the most acceptable facsimile of same — restored, here’s what happened: A heapin’ helpin’ of raucous music played; libations were poured; deals were made just outside the back door in the alley; inhibitions were discarded for the evening’s balance (with some help from Uncle Morty, whose former ice cream truck materialized in a punctual manner mid-program); tenuous alliances formed until the spell was broken; and all manner of picaresque diversions suffused the atmosphere within the Purple Bat Lounge. Hear all this and more, merely by clicking a few pixels south of here…

Apparently DJ Reeshard pulled what fellow DJ Lee-Roy deems “his shrunken Caucasian cojones” out of the hot water during last Saturday’s broadcast from the Purple Bat Lounge. And just how did Reeshard accomplish as much? By announcing on air that the latest N.C.I.P. premium for the upcoming Luxuria Music Pledge Drive would be…wait for it, wait for it…matchbooks! Yes, matchbooks commemorating the show’s base of operations, the Purple Bat itself. Lee-Roy responded to the news with a shrug of his shoulders: “So what? I use a vape pen.” We can’t help but feel that the canine contrarian is missing the point. Try writing some bitch’s number on a vape pen, Big Dog, and see where that gets you. Imagery for the forthcoming flame-starters will be posted on the site in the week to come. Quoting our old pal Borat, “We very excite!” In the meantime, check out the latest show with its three dozen tunes, a big bad Blaxploitation double feature at The Madison, a visit from Uncle Morty and so much more, all by clicking immediately below…

A new year is ushered in, and with it comes the mounting anxiety occasioned by Luxuria Music’s upcoming Pledge Drive. Despite the latter event occurring on an annual basis, much like equinoxes and holidays and prostate examination and tax collection, Reeshard is never prepared for the Pledge Drive. This past Saturday found Lee-Roy’s designated human fretting in the booth, without a clue as to what might make a premium sufficient to incentivize potentially generous listeners. This, a dilemma which afforded Brush St.’s most famous pit bull a heaping helping of Schadenfreude at Reeshard’s expense. Not that this concern colored the show itself to any noticeable degree: Three dozen storming tunes played; Uncle Morty stopped by with a canister of Black Dog Fire OG; A seriously Psychotronic™ double feature played at the Madison; and otherwise, everything was wild in Wildwood, just as we (and hopefully you) like it.

Political viewpoints never merit a moment’s serious consideration at the Purple Bat Lounge…why should they receive special treatment? No topic garners such consideration at the bar, certainly not politics, especially not on a Saturday evening. Our most recent episode nearly proved the exception to the rule, however. Uncle Morty’s truck pulled up, mid-episode, and aced yet another of the bar’s lawn jockeys on the sidewalk out front. Once the dust and plaster chips had settled, DJ Lee-Roy took receipt of a small canister marked Marionberry Pie. Which spurred his immediate search for a ‘willing intern’…and, frankly, that’s about as political as it got. Otherwise, the Madison theater advertised their idea of a mental health double feature and Reeshard played nearly three dozen tunes, supporting the vibe of energized apathy for which the establishment is justly renowned. There was more, of course, all of which is better heard than described. You can do that for yourself, simply by clicking in the right spot immediately below…

Double Trouble

Another Saturday night on Brush Street, and within the Purple Bat Lounge the equation remained the same: You want it. We got it. Let’s do it! Nearly three dozen songs played, every last one of them a keeper. The Madison hosted a twin-bill designed to let you know that science is not your friend. Uncle Morty parked his grim-looking former ice cream truck at the curb, dropping off a small canister of something labeled ‘Jah Goo,’ the latter designed to let you know that Uncle Morty is indeed your friend. DJ Lee-Roy restated his affection for nutty French actor Béatrice Dalle. Reeshard back announced each set per usual and gave a shout-out to Pasadena’s annual Doo-Dah Parade. Otherwise, the dogs barked and the train rolled on. Click in the right spot immediately below and you can pretend to have spent an evening in the bad part of town, without getting anything on your outfit…

We bumped softly down a hill toward an open field that seemed to be a military graveyard, filled with rows and rows of austere, identical markers over soldiers’ graves. I’d never before come across this cemetery. On the farther side of the field, just beyond the curtains of snow, the sky was torn away and the angels were descending out of a brilliant blue summer, their huge faces streaked with light and full of pity. The sight of them cut through my heart and down the knuckles of my spine, and if there’d been anything in my bowels I would have messed my pants from fear.

Georgie opened his arms and cried out, “It’s the drive-in, man!”

“The drive-in . . .” I wasn’t sure what these words meant.

“They’re showing movies in a fucking blizzard!” Georgie screamed.

“I see. I thought it was something else,” I said.

We walked carefully down there and climbed through the busted fence and stood in the very back. The speakers, which I’d mistaken for grave markers, muttered in unison. Then there was tinkly music, of which I could very nearly make out the tune. Famous movie stars rode bicycles beside a river, laughing out of their gigantic, lovely mouths. If anybody had come to see this show, they’d left when the weather started. Not one car remained, not even a broken-down one from last week, or one left here because it was out of gas. In a couple of minutes, in the middle of a whirling square dance, the screen turned black, the cinematic summer ended, the snow went dark, there was nothing but my breath.

Denis Johnson, “Emergency” from Jesus’ Son (1993)

Van Gogh writing his brother for paints
Hemingway testing his shotgun
Celine going broke as a doctor of medicine
the impossibility of being human
Shakespeare a plagiarist
Beethoven with a horn stuck into his head against deafness
the impossibility the impossibility
Nietzsche gone totally mad
the impossibility of being human
all too human
this breathing
in and out
out and in
these punks
these cowards
these champions
these mad dogs of glory** 
moving this little bit of light toward us
impossibly.

Charles Bukowski, “Beasts Bounding Through Time” (1986)
